Eieren av Harrods, egyptiskættede Mohamed Fayed hevdet i retten at prinsesse Diana ble drept av etterretningstjenesten MI6 fordi hun ventet barn med hans sønn, og at ordren kom fra prins Philip som ikke kunne godta et muslimsk barn i kongefamilien.
Det var en omfattende konspirasjon Fayed avdekket i retten: sammensvergelsen om fattet prins Philip, prins Charles og til og med statsminister Tony Blair. Regjeringssjefen måtte nok inkluderes, for kongefamilien har ingen mulighet til å beordre MI6 til noe som helst.
Mohamed Fayed har lenge vært monomant opptatt av at Diana og han sønn Dodi, ble drept i et attentat. Opplysningen om at Diana var gravid var det bare han som fikk, hun skal ha sagt det til ham fredagen før de dro til Paris. Lite av dette stemmer med obduksjonene, men Fayed løser dette ved å si at blodprøver ble byttet om.
Det alvorlige er at han hevder at Diana ble drept av rasistiske grunner, og at kongefamilien og statsministeren sto bak.
In a series of extraordinary allegations at the inquest into the Princess’s death, Mr Fayed also accused her former husband, the Prince of Wales, of plotting her «murder» so he could marry his new «crocodile wife» Camilla Parker Bowles.
Mohamed Fayed; Calls Prince Philip a Nazi
Watch: Mohamed Fayed’s accusations from court keep conspiracy theories alive
He said the Royal Family were a «Dracula family» who had murdered the Princess the moment she had found happiness and even implicated Tony Blair, the former prime minister, in the plot.
The alleged conspiracy and cover-up included senior royals; MI6; two former Scotland Yard commissioners; French police and medics; the Princess’s sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and several of her close friends, he claimed.
At the centre of Mr Fayed’s case was a claim that his son and the Princess telephoned him an hour before the accident to say they were expecting a baby and would announce their engagement after she had told her sons.
Mr Fayed said: «I’m the only person that they told. Princess Diana told me before and during the holiday we shared in July 1997 of her fears. She told me that she knew Prince Philip and Prince Charles were trying to get rid of her.»
He went on: «Prince Philip would not accept my son or anyone who is a person of different religion, naturally-tanned, curly hair. They would not accept that he would have anything to do with the future King.
«Prince Philip rules the country behind the scenes. I think Prince Philip is the actual head of the Royal Family. He is a racist. He was brought up by his aunt who married one of Hitler’s generals.
«This is the man who is in charge, who is manipulating and can do anything. It’s time to send him back to Germany from where he comes. You want to know his original name – it ends in Frankenstein.»
Ian Burnett QC, for the coroner, asked Mr Fayed: «All this stems from your belief that Prince Philip is not only a racist but a Nazi as well?» Mr Fayed replied: «That’s right.»
